In my shop you will always find the note "organic cotton", because I only buy certified organic cotton for my products out of conviction. Why? For good reason! Or rather for good reasons ;)
Reason 1: Less water consumption
Organic cotton requires less water than conventional cotton. Why? When organic cotton is grown, more rainwater is used for irrigation and water management is better. Due to the natural crop rotation in organic cultivation, the soil can also store water better.
Reason 2: No pesticides
Chemical-synthetic fertilizers and plant products are prohibited in organic cultivation. Pests are controlled using traditional methods such as placing other plants between the cotton plants that are even more attractive to pests. As a result, a fabric made from organic cotton is also more pleasant for the skin, because it is not uncommon for skin rashes and allergies to result from the fact that we wear pesticides on our skin. A little tip: Be sure to wash every piece of clothing (regardless of whether it is organic or not) before you wear it for the first time! In this way you wash out harmful substances beforehand and do not burden your body with them.
Reason 3: No genetic manipulation
Genetically modified plants are prohibited in organic cultivation. These can lead to the development of resistance, loss of genetic diversity or uncontrolled spread. In addition, genetically modified seeds make farmers dependent on the companies that produce and sell these seeds, since they are then dependent on one type of seed.
